We use the SGEEE 5.3 on a 512 processor Opteron cluster (256 procs with 
There is a problem for users submitting jobs demanding a bigger number 
of processors ( >= 64).
Since smaller jobs are processed whenever enough ressources are free 
(e.g. 32 procs), the bigger
jobs will never get a chance to be processed even if they have the much 
higher priority.

As I learned from this list (Mail from Graham Wilson 24 Jul 2003) there 
is no starving available in SGEEE 5.3

Is starving available in SGE 6.0 (we will migrate anyway)? Or do you 
know another solution for this problem?

Many thanks for any suggestions or hints.
